On Monday night, the old Weatherford Street bridge in downtown Fort Worth was imploded, and although local media and TXDOT made announcements in advance, people freaked out -- especially because the implosion was felt and heard in places such as Arlington, Hurst and Dallas, none of which are near the bridge. Curiously, some people near the bridge heard nothing, while others thought it was thunder, an earthquake or a sonic boom. Twitter reacted accordingly.
A blast heard 15 miles away!? Uh, I live 400 yards from the blast...and I can confirm no horn was sounded.
I didn't even feel the shock from the Weatherford St. bridge's implosion and I live 5 minutes away...yet people in Hurst felt it... What?!
Mystery solved. It was the implosion of the Weatherford St. Bridge in DT FW @ 10 tonight. #whew #PutApocalypseSuppliesBackIntoSecretBunker
NO IT WAS ALIENS I SEEN IT WITH ME OWN EYES
"old weatherford ave bridge demolition" that's what the illuminati wants you to think
There was no "bridge demolition." I as a member of The Illuminati was told that the explosion was a rocket filled with old pokemon episodes.
There is a Sonic over by the Weatherford bridge. Must've felt like a 'sonic boom' over there ;-)
